As we only had a little over 24 hrs in Copenhagen, we were looking to find a hotel convenient to the center of the city as well as the airport. The Hilton Copenhagen Airport is very convenient to both. It’s located right across the street from the airport, and a short 15 minute metro ride from the center of the city. It couldn’t have taken us more than 10 minutes to walk from exiting customs to the front desk of the lobby. It has a beautiful, spacious lobby with plenty of seating to wait for friends arriving on different flights or just coming down from their room. The staff checking us in were very polite and incredibly helpful with suggestions on restaurants and directions how to navigate the city.
As a Gold HHonors member (thanks to my Hilton American Express) we were put in a room on the executive level where the lounge is located. As you can see, the room was nicely decorated and certainly a nice sized room for the two of us. We hardly ever use much of the furniture in hotel rooms, but having a small sofa in the room was nice. I loved the floor to ceiling window, and I’m glad that they didn’t locate the desk in front of it like I’ve seen at some other Hiltons.
I would have loved to had a view of the airport where we could watch planes land and take off, but we were on the other side of the hotel. The funky shaped building to the right is The Blue Planet aquarium that just recently opened. In the distance you can also see the giant wind turbines located in the sea. It was very cool to fly over so many of those coming into and leaving Copenhagen.
The real highlight of this hotel was the lounge. I haven’t visited many hotel lounges in my travels, but the combination of the views and the décor made it one of my favorites so far.
The lounge was on the South side of the building facing the airport so that you could enjoy watching airplanes land and take off.
The fridge was well stocked with water, soft drinks, tea, juices, and even chocolate milk. There were plenty of snacks available as well. We took full advantage of grabbing some food and drinks before heading off into the city when we first arrived. I believe there was a happy hour as well later that evening where there were free alcoholic drinks available, but we weren’t in the lounge at that time.
As a Gold HHonors member, we were also entitled to a free breakfast, which was provided in the lounge at this hotel. Again, there were plenty of food and drink options to choose from, especially when I think of a typical European breakfast being bread, jelly, and maybe some cold cuts. It’s always nice to start the day off with a free breakfast.
Overall, this was the perfect hotel for us. Great location and great amenities for such a short trip. As the rates are quite pricey I’d highly suggest booking it on points as I’ll discuss in a later post describing our hotel bookings for the entire trip.
